didn't want to wait a week. Got the Almond Milk. LOVED IT! It brought my protein shake from 200 calories to 155 calories. I think that is GREAT! I will definately be changing to this!

Cows milk will sour if not kept refrigerated. Almond milk will not sour but tastes better cold.

I really do not like the regular unsweetened or even the sweetened vanilla. However both my husband and I love the chocolate. It's got sugar though, so not a health food. I may be able to use the regular for smoothies. I don't drink smoothies until it's warm outside (and it's not yet) but I will be trying it.

Interesting. I didn't know that. I'm part Native American too (or so my mom tells me), and milk aggravates me a bit too.

I happen to like coconut milk too. It's got a rich, creamy flavor. A lot of people think it's the closet to cow's milk by taste, but I'm not sure. It has an "extra" flavor in there too, like all the other milk alternatives. I guess it's just what your taste-buds prefer.

I'm torn on this. Unsweetened almond milk has only 30 calories and I LOVE it with my protein shake! But it has significantly less protein than soy milk. So I'm not sure.

And the further you go down the sugar chain...chocolate, to vanilla, to regular, to unsweetened...the more almond flavor you get. I think I could get used to it but I like to EAT my almonds. I like the vanilla flavor, but unsweetened is almost too nutty. Mixed with protein shake though...delicious!
